Comment on Where to now for council and Stuart statue? by Hal Duell.

As regards the talk of respect, how many times has the Reptile Centre across the road from the statue been vandalised?
And hasn’t this vandalising been by youth doing whatever on Akeyulerre, or Billy Goat Hill, a site of acknowledged traditional importance?
Not much respect there.
And as for kids playing on the statue while their parents sit and talk, and sometimes argue and drink, on the public lawns, so what? A bit of play has to be more exciting than listening to the oldies carry on like pork chops.

Wakefield insists on Anzac Oval, ignores majority
Once again it seems to be a case of our way or the highway.
When this location debate first came up, I was of the opinion that the Desert Park was the right choice. But then the traditional owners spoke up at the council meeting debating to MOU or not to MOU, and the TOs seemed to be united in wanting any gallery to be south of The Gap.
So what’s the problem?
If revitalising the CBD is truly the aim, build flats there, and build a skate park at the river end of Parsons Street, and make the area vibrant again.
